I don't think I've officially declared myself a Total Drama fan. Well, I've technically been interested since June of 2013 (putting the year since I barely touch this DA journal), thanks entirely to & no one/nothing else.
I REFUSE TO TOUCH CARTOON NETWORK. EVER. AGAIN.
How do I watch it then, without supporting the channel that hosts the show?
Youtube is a very wonderful thing. Seriously. Found half of my childhood on there already.
How do I actually feel about the show?
The show itself as a whole is horribly awful. Okay... this needs to be clarified: CHRIS MCCLAIN is horribly awful, & needs to be put in jail for LIFE......
Now, I realize this show is probably based on reality sitcoms like Survivor. I get that. It's supposed to be challenging & not something you'd see in everyday life.
But there does need to be a certain point that is NEVER crossed. Chris, this show host, has crossed that line so many times that I can't come up with a number.
So why on EARTH do I watch it?
The question should be..... "if you're also a fan, why do YOU watch it?"
So, as you might've guessed, it's the teens themselves, & those of you that have known me for awhile, well... you know my little *COUGH*trainwreck*COUGH* with Cartoon Couples.
Now before I continue, it should be stated how much of the show I've watched up to this point:
Season 4: Revenge of the Island
Season 5: All Stars
SO, with that in mind, the favorites seem to be, with NO particular order except for the first one:
Semi-Favorites that are, occasionally, annoying:
Couples are as follows:
Scourtney: Scott & Courtney
Zoke: Mike & Zoey
Samkota: Sam & Dakota
Notice how most of them are from the Revenge cast. This is because they are how I was introduced to the show, & 's influence with Mike & Zoey only helped, & naturally with many of my pairings, the friendships Zoey & Mike made along the way, ALONG with their enemies/rivals, have pretty much defined how I see the other characters.
"If that's the case, why Scott?" Good question! I barely know myself! heh.
Well, the best way I can put it, is... ya'know how we get these smart-alec characters (well, like him!), that, at some point or another, gain, or more importantly, EARN the sympathy factor down the road?
Scott is one of these characters. At first, I hated him like quite a few people, because of his antongist ways in the fourth season. However, as I got closer to the finale, well, all at once, we got a sympathy factor, which hid itself in the form of Karma. Those of you that know the 4th season know what I mean. Well, at first I was in the obvious reaction of "hah! Pwned! " much like with Chris in season 5's opening scene. BUT, I also knew that, especially with Scott's elimination scene, this was definitely crossing the line on Chris's part. & this particular scene was too harsh, even with everything in season 4 when you look at what we put up with when it came to Scott. Then of course the finale episode, well.... Look it up, you'll see the sympathetic act ramped up bigtime. Most eps are on youtube, like I said, including both of these that I mentioned.
All Stars kicked it up a notch to a whole new level with the sympathy factor, especially given that he's now a shell amount of the character we knew in season 4. No scheming, or just BARELY, at least, in comparison.... among other things.
It certainly doesn't help that Scott is, for lack of a better word, a country redneck.
I NEVER GET A CHARACTER I CAN EFFECTIVELY USE MY TYPE OF MUSIC WITH WHEN SHIPPING THAT CHARACTER.
Seriously, the closest I've EVER come is Felix himself, & he ONLY fits the sweeter(est), mushy, happy-go-lucky songs that I tend to like better ANYWAYS.
Scott can fit almost ANYTHING in the playlists! You have NO idea how bad I want to AMV right now. Just one problem: we NEVER get homelife flashbacks of these guys! So AMVing the stuff I actually want to with him & Courtney, well.... it wouldn't have the BEST effect.
Then Courtney comes into the factor. & for those actually wanting to watch, OR catch up, without spoilers, I won't say a whole lot here.
But I've already spoiled the obvious in just saying that alone. Well, to be blunt, they definitely make it as my #1 couple for the show. I can't say much else for sake of spoilers. But if you want my opinion on scenes, etc... you know how to message me.
& I'm sure you can gather from my recent favoriting splurge, that I'm already obsessed to the point that I was/still kinda am, with Felix & Calhoun.
Yes, Next-Gen(s) for the show are in the works already in my mind, (just 1, however. I put that there because, knowing me, this number will likely be changed by some point ) but as I'm still working out things here n there, AND because, also as ususal, this particular version is meshed together with some of my other ideals, I'll want to elaborate, & frankly this'll just get out of hand, & really, I should be doing homework right now. =_= Going to after posting this.
Just needed to get this out of my system.
